    Slip Highlighted Clips

    Let’s say you are creating a montage of 9 video clips, and you are still in the creative zone, meaning you pretty much have decided on which images, but now the exact sequence from 1 thru 9 is still up for grabs. I’d love to have a tool that would make it easier/faster to swap clips around: e.g., swap 3 with 6, 1 with 8, or simply Slip entire Clips, rather than just frames from the top and tail clips of a continuous run of clips.

    This could be a fun, very non-linear tool, great to demo, and in my opinion, just as useful as moving clips up and down vertically on the timeline.

    How would this differ from yellow arrow segment mode?

    Good question, Carl. I see this FR as an extension or evolution of the non-linear tools Avid created decades ago.

    I would describe it as the difference between MAKING the required yellow splice segment moves step by step,

    vs. having the intended dual choice MADE FOR YOU, without changing position of clips in-between, which *I think* is unavoidable if the later clip is longer than the early clip.

    Indeed, I imagine that with the power of  2017 computers, MC can calculate/offer EVERY possible iteration of a re-working of any number of highlighted clips, and  present All choices, including ones that are a combo of what would normally require a Replace and Tops/Tails to keep other clips from moving relative to, say an audio track.

    And as long as the initial cluster of clips exists, those possible variations would remain available, way past what  the usual UNDO tool provides.
